  4. Lists
  5. Empty Easter eggs
  6. Bottles of lotion, empty and otherwise
  7. Never used make-up and nail polish
  8. Used up sharpie markers
  9. Right shoes, with the left ones nowhere in sight

    Too funny! I live with and am in love with a hoarder. I have to have everything clean and in it's place. I'm tired when I finally get to go to bed at night! However, the list thing – I get. I have them everywhere! My therapist suggested that I might not ever reach the happiness that I want in my relationship because of this issue – I think he's worth it though! He and his parents completely rehabbed his house so I could move in last summer. I've been slowly working through the leftovers and have turned it into a build mastery.

    Btw – I love your goal of being off meds by the end of the year. I wish I could say I was there. I'm actually thinking about doing another round of DBT. I so wish I could say after two and a half years of intense therapy that I was further along. Some days I feel like I'm ten steps behind where I was when I first landed in the psych ward. You certainly inspire me!


  2. Ping from Dawnie:

    According to this list, we could be roommates. Ha! Sometimes I'll catch an episode of hoarders on TV, and it gives me mixed feelings. I crave some things more, and it makes me want to clean out all the rest.

  3. Ping from Walkingborder (Karen):

    Keep in mind, that having children completely rewires my brain chemistry and I just had one 4 months ago. I have also had complete life changes that put me in a better place. I'm now in a job I love that pays the bills. A job where I'm appreciated. I have a complete and healthy family. I'm in a good place in life that lets me be in a good place in my head. I can't say I'll be off them until the end of time. But for now at least, I think I can be off them for a bit.

    Meanwhile, as for hoarding, I'm more of a purger. I cna't stand clutter. But there are a few things I'm guilty of hoarding. Lol. 6 and 7 on that list are true to life. The rest of it would just be easy for me because it's stuff I always have that I could just keep instead of tossing.

  4. Ping from Chibi:

    I hoard makeup. *shame face*

  5. Ping from Cindy Lou Who:

    i totally hoard coathangers

  6. Ping from Original_Wacky:

    I definitely hoard nail polish. And hugs. I hoard them. But I share. Hee!

  7. Ping from Tara R.:

    Oh dear… #1, yep. #6 and #7 yes to those too. Instead of hoarding, I prefer the term 'packrattery.'

  8. Ping from Smitty:

    VERY nice post. What do I hoard? Oh let me count the ways, and look back at your "I would if I could" list. Sounds like you do NOT hoard. We will be moving this year, so I will get to find out what I hoard, already!

  9. Ping from Walkingborder (Karen):

    I am so glad everyone was amused by this list! I had fun with it.
